Hey,

Bought 2 cans of Vision 2 16mm 7218 500t from my friend. He couldn't remember if its single or double perf. Now I'm shooting Super 16 so I need to check if its single (if its double just keep it for some reg. 16). Anyways I was looking at Kodaks information on what the labeling on the can means but I don't know how to tell if its single or double.

Thanks

Look at the label. If it says 1R you're safe. 2R means two perf. I'd be very suprised if it was a 400' roll and was 2R. There's a slightly increased chance of 2R with 100' rolls.

If you're sure they're unopened original cans, you can go by the 1R or 2R. Otherwise, just take it in the darkroom or changing bag, and snip off a couple inches to look at in the light.
